A Mortgage Broker works in your interest

The role of an independent mortgage broker is to negotiate, for you, the best terms of borrowing considering your situation. He is a specialist who is not attached to any particular financial institution or lender. He has access to a range of lending resources and institutions as well as very competitive mortgage rates. In the context where the purchase of a property constitutes your main investment, he is your main asset to plan the best financial strategy according to your reality.

The Mortgage Brokers, members of the RCIIQ, benefit from our large volume of transactions and our privileged partnership with the firm Mortgage Architects. They understand market trends, know the features of the hundreds of proposed mortgage products, and keep themselves informed of any new mortgage proposal or offer. In short, they know all the relevant information.
